Anka wanted a Canadian band to feature on the show and Clayton-Thomas fronted a jazz/rock band called The Bossmen - we had the number one record in Canada at the time. Clayton-Thomas returned to Toronto after the show but the creative scene in the Big Apple beckoned. He got a NYC gig playing guitar for John Lee Hooker - and in the funky clubs of Greenwich Village he met several founding members of what was to become a chart-dominating jazz fusion band with an utterly distinctive sound - Blood Sweat & Tears. For a brief period at the end of the 1960s and the start of the 1970s Blood Sweat & Tears which fused a rock n roll rhythm section to a horn section stormed the pop charts. Clayton-Thomas joined this stellar group of musicians in 1969 bringing a handful of new songs as they delivered the monumental Grammy Album of the Year Blood Sweat & Tears. Now hear the music and read the complete story about how this legendary band succeeded from the ultimate BS&T insider - David Clayton-Thomas himself Bloodlines from Analogue Productions captures the BS&T sound as never before on four remastered LPs - Child Is Father To The Man Blood Sweat & Tears Blood Sweat & Tears 3 and B S & T 4. Each album was remastered from the original master tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound in New York and each was plated and pressed on deluxe 200-gram heavyweight vinyl at our own Quality Record Pressings maker of the worlds finest-sounding LPs. The jackets - from Stoughton Printing - are top-of-the-line old-style tip-on showcasing immaculately reproduced artwork. The whole set comes in a custom-designed deluxe hinged box. For this special box set David Clayton-Thomas was gracious enough to contribute a wonderfully-written essay telling the whole history of the band and its origins. The eight-piece band signed to Columbia Records and recorded Blood Sweat &Tears debut album Child Is Father to the Man which was released in February 1968. Cofounder Al Kooper then departed and the group was reorganized. Singer David Clayton-Thomas was added trombonist Dick Halligan moved to the keyboards and trumpeters Chuck Winfield and Lew Soloff replaced Randy Brecker and Jerry Weiss with Jerry Hyman being added on trombone. This nine-piece unit working with producer James William Guercio made Blood Sweat & Tears self-titled second album released in January 1969. Blood Sweat & Tears was a runaway hit spawning three gold-selling Top 10 singles Youve Made Me So Very Happy Spinning Wheel and And When I Die selling three million copies and winning the Grammy Award for Album of the Year.
